Over the last seven years the fund has supported many works by young and talented choreographers such as Mara Galeazzi, Vitali afronkine, Ksenia Ovsyanick, Christine Sundt, Jenna Lee and Jorge Garcia Perez to name but a few, as well as more established names.
The charity’s aims and ambitions are to support young artists and creatives in their desire to create new work. The charity through its endeavours supports educational programmes and initiatives to further education in the arts with a focus on ballet and dance, as well as to engage new young audiences.
It is the charity’s ethos to not only give young creative talent the opportunity to produce new and exciting work but for us also to work with bodies to help provide a platform for it to be presented on.
The charity gives small grants to successful applicants for projects that meet the ethos of the fund and the tenets it was set up on. If you would like to apply for a grant for a project then please write to us in the first instance and include a short precis/synopsis of the project. The synopsis should be no longer than 300 words.
If the board of trustees feel that it is something the charity would like to support then an application form and letter will be emailed to you. If your application is not approved, you will required to wait for six months before re-applying.
The charity offers small grants to young and emerging creative talents in the field of ballet and dance. The charity in general offers grants between £450 - £5000 to successful application for the creation of original work, education projects, artist support, student funding and projects that help further the education in the arts with a focus on ballet and dance.
If you would like to support an artist then please email us. We are contacted regularly by young creatives, choreographers, designers and dancers who do not have the income to complete training or would benefit from a sponsor or benefactor at the beginning of their training and early career. Your support can make a big difference.
We will soon be announcing an exciting creative project in the form of a Choreographic competition. Watch this space for more details!
At present all grants that have been issued have been completed. We will be posting news on the next round of grants over the coming months.
Proudly, since the funds inception in 2010, it has been a spring board for over 20 short works by young and emerging creative talents. We hope to continue to help create new work by young talents for years to come and hope you will help us to help them.
